Medium Steady

Yes it was raining when I got up. Yes it was raining when I set off for the Showground. Yes the forecast was for rain. Yes it rained!!. Only me for the scheduled medium ride this morning while Vince , Tim 1 and newcomer Daniel considered their options. As I was on my own I could only argue with myself. With best intentions I set out on today scheduled route. Perhaps some other idiot would be waiting at Low Bridge? No. Not even any EGs when I got there. Lots of surface water and by the time I got to Copgrove I could hear the coffee shop in Boroughbridge calling my name. So I missed Burton Leonard , Bishop Monkton and Roecliffe and went for Staveley Minskip and Boroughbridge, Plenty were very quiet by their standards although 2 guys from Ilkley C.C. had braved the elements. A little bit drier and replenished with coffee and a great toasted tea cake I emerged into – rain. That’s it. I’d given it a shot. Home beckoned. Just short of 27 wet miles home to home. Colin B
